David Lane: ‘Homosexual Fascism’ Will Destroy America

David Lane, the man Republican candidates flock to in order to gain credibility with the Christian right, has a new column in Charisma News. It’s his usual mishmash of lies, oversimplifications and incoherent history, all leading to the conclusion that “homosexual fascism” will destroy America.

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule on the homosexual marriage case on June 29. A pro-homosexual marriage opinion by the Justices will be an easy decision to disobey for Christians. The choice is obedience to Christ or obedience to the state.

No, actually, it isn’t. And it isn’t their job to be “obedient to Christ.” That would be their job if we lived in the Christian theocracy you long for so badly, but this is not that country. Maybe you’d be happier in Vatican City?

Since the law has been drained of all truth by judicial secularists and relativists, what is good and what is evil are apparently determined by whatever five Supreme Court Justices can agree to on any given day.

Wrong again. The Supreme Court justices do not declare what is good and evil, only what is legal or constitutional. You’re perfectly free to go on thinking that gay marriage is the most evil thing ever, and I’m sure you will. You just can’t impose those views on others. You see, the law allows all manner of beliefs and actions that you despise and that the Bible condemns, like worshiping other gods and working on the sabbath. That doesn’t mean the Constitution has declared evil to be good, it means we live in a free country where theocrats like you don’t get to decide what others can do. Maybe you’d be happier in Pakistan or Saudi Arabia? They agree with you about all of this.

Secularist values are not only different from, but also sharply antithetical to Christianity. The Justices’ removal of the Bible from public schools in 1963—the fixed point in order to structure and judge society for 350 years—guaranteed the spiritual collapse of America.

I agree, secularist values are sharply antithetical to Christianity. They’re better, by a wide margin. For instance, as a secularist, I don’t think it’s okay to lie as you just did. The Supreme Court did not, in fact, remove the Bible from public schools in 1963, they only removed mandatory, forced reading of the Bible. And if you’re in favor of the government forcing non-Christian children to read the Bible, I think you’ve given up any right to call anything fascism ever again.

America is going to learn something that can be learned in no other way, concentrated power in the hands of secular, omniscient Justices threatens America’s liberty and freedom.

Yeah, the guy who just demanded the authority to force children who aren’t Christian to read the Bible and has elsewhere demanded that they be forced to recite government-written prayers, is now blathering about “liberty and freedom.” Irony!

This seems to be as good a time as any to speak of the threat posed by militant homosexuals. Homosexual activists once demanded libertarianism: “Grant us the right to live our lives in the privacy of our homes.” Now, they have transitioned into totalitarianism: “Christian bakers, florists and photographers must take part in our homosexual weddings or be destroyed and bankrupted.” But what comes next is homosexual fascism: “The followers of Jesus are going to celebrate and applaud same-sex marriage or spend time in jail.”

Oh, please do wake me up when that happens. And if it doesn’t, perhaps you should just shut the fuck up. Forever.

Homosexual intercourse and homosexual marriage are merely the characteristic marks of a decadent society. Caitlin Jenner is simply the latest role model “showcased” for our children to emulate, sanctioned by public education, higher learning, the main street media and Hollywood. Secularists are dismantling America brick-by-brick.

Behold, the power of The Gay! Resistance is futile.

    If they were omniscient, I’d feel a bit less threatened.

    But … but … America is a Christian nation! The Constitution was given to George Washington by Jesus himself! If you want to live here you have to assimilate into the Christian culture!

    Oh, now I feel dirty …

    Note that he also couldn’t be bothered to spell Caitlyn jenner’s name right.

  • eamick

    Jenner. Grrr.

  • cptdoom

    Now, they have transitioned into totalitarianism: “Christian bakers, florists and photographers must take part in our homosexual weddings or be destroyed and bankrupted.”

    Actually, no, we just demand to be treated the same as the Mormons, the Jews, divorced people or anyone else who doesn’t fit the “Christian” definition of marriage. Or, alternatively, you can just think of it as we’re demanding to be treated with the same respect you demand we show you. And that’s what really ticks you off.

    The older I get, the more I just feel sorry for people like Lane. What a sad little life, filled with so much fear and hatred!

  • D. C. Sessions

    The Supreme Court did not, in fact, remove the Bible from public schools in 1963, they only removed mandatory, forced reading of the Bible.

    Same thing. Without compulsion, the Bible is just another pile of paper and doomed to the remaindering shelves and swap meets.

    What’s interesting is that Christians agree with that statement.

    Misspelling of names is a standard fundie technique when referring to The Ghey, transgenders, or people like Jenner. The belief is that, by misspelling, they dilute the potency of the awesome magical powers these people have to enforce their evil agenda on the godly, but ever-so-weak and persecuted, xtian.

    Either that or they’re stupid and/or lazy.

    The Justices’ removal of the Bible from public schools in 1963—the fixed point in order to structure and judge society for 350 years—guaranteed the spiritual collapse of America.

    And yet since then, we’ve granted equal rights under the law to blacks and gays, reduced the rate of murder and rape, increased environmental protections, have technologies those in 1963 wouldn’t have dreamed of, amking life safer and fuller and longer than it ever has been. Sounds like “removing the Bible from the public schools”, using your preferred post hoc ergo propter hoc analytical method, has resulted in a spiritual renaissance.

    South, North or Central?

    More importantly how exactly? Teh Ghey is more powerful than how many H-bombs and what mass/ velocity bolide strikes?

  • StevoR

    @8. Larry : Reckon likely both.

  • carpenterman

    I shake my head every time I see someone like Lane talking about “disobeying the law”. How can they break a law that has NO impact on them whatsoever? If the Supremes rule that gay people have a legal right to get married, these Christians will… what? Refuse to marry someone of their own sex? Hey, me too. Will their own, same sex marriages remain legitimate and valid, with all the legal advantages marriage confers still intact? Yes. Will they continue to vilify and rail at their fellow citizens, who’ve never done anything to them? No doubt… but that will make them assholes, not criminals.

    ‘Homosexual Fascism’ Will Destroy America

    As opposed to ‘Christian Fascism”?

  • caseloweraz

    Exactly, Mobius. If Lane were honest, he’d say something along the lines of, “We can’t let homosexuals destroy America — that’s our job!”

  • Jeremy Shaffer

    eamick @ 3 He may have misspelled it but, to his credit, he didn’t refer to her as “Bruce”.

    Or, to put it another way, Lane gets marginally passing marks for doing the very least since many like him can’t or won’t even bother putting even that much effort into being a decent person.

  • frankgturner

    @ carpenterman #12

    A small correction, that will make them “bigger” assholes.

  • blf

    They’ll need the bigger arsehole to accommodate shoving their own head further up it.

    A pro-homosexual marriage opinion by the Justices will be an easy decision to disobey for Christians. The choice is obedience to Christ or obedience to the state.

    A pro-homosexual opinion means you’ll all be required to gay marry! Mwhahahaha! Where’s your god now, Christians!

    Pakistan

    To be fair, Ed, urban Pakistan has a good number of secularists. The government is nominally secular. They’re quite aware of the dangers of sectarianism…but that’s because, to be fair to your point, they can’t seem to stop it.

    I, personally, would recommend that David Lane avoid centers of learning and government while in Pakistan. He should rail against how the intelligent elite of Pakistan is ruining their core, theocratic values.

    Then he’d have 40 more years of relevance there than here, which is more than he needs to live out whatever remains of his life steeped in his loathing of others’ ability to be recognized as equal to him before civil authority.

    I’m betting that a lot of gay christians won’t find it so easy to disobey.
